Can you feel it? Segwit is coming August 1st

With BIP148 activating Segwit, and miners on board with Segwit2x (Which increases compatibility with BIP148) I feel the whole energy of consensus has just shifted to a positive direction for Bitcoin.

Segwit paves the way for so many new Bitcoin features.

  • Additional scalability
  • Transaction malleability fix
  • Lightning Network
  • Cross chain atomic swaps
  • Better privacy
  • Sidechains/Drivechains
  • More decentralized Rootstock

and so much other stuff..

It's exciting times.
